Case Study Provided A manuscript has been submitted to a journal. After being sent out for peer review, one of the reviewers contacted the editor and said that she had reviewed the manuscript previously for another journal. What concerned her about the manuscript was that, in the submission to the other journal, a time course experiment was shown in which intracellular calcium was measured by fura-2. The external solution was said to be NaCl? in the original submission. However, the identical figure is in this manuscript, only with the external solution being stated to contain LiCl?. In the reviewer’s original review, she had made the major comment that the experiment should be rerun with LiCl?. What should be done?
